Global AGV Sees 2020 Rapid Growth of Autonomous Forklifts Due to Pandemic

Global AGV Vice President of U.S. Sales, Nic Temple, recently discussed how many manufacturers are looking to automate material handling processes because it reduces the potential for COVID-19 exposure by reducing human contact. Manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler spoke with Temple in Robotics & Automation News. Read the article here

According to Temple, “The key advantages of autonomous forklifts are critical during the pandemic. A single unit offers a dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that may allow compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today’s highly-complex manufacturing operations.” 

Realistically an operation with just a few forklifts will replace a unit every 5 – 7 years.  A manufacturer currently operating just a few units will exchange the next purchase in 2020 with an autonomous forklift to discover the true value that automation can bring to the operation. Implementing automation as a scalable solution will allow for an unbiased comparison of autonomous versus manual forklift operations.

About Global AGV

A single Global AGV unit offers dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that allows compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today’s highly-complex manufacturing operations. 

Forklifts will be replaced every 5 – 7 years. A manufacturer currently operating just a few units will exchange the next forklift purchase in 2020 with an autonomous forklift to discover the true value that automation can bring to the operation. Autonomous forklifts provide automation which reduces movement costs per pallet and per case.  

Global AGV driverless autonomous forklifts offer a straightforward interface solution: a simple point to point horizontal movement of pallets, offering the opportunity of buying only 1 or 2 units at a time. The breakthrough is selling an automated forklift as a product rather than a project. If the manufacturer wants a turnkey solution, a local network of system integrators is available. Global AGV customers order a standard product which can be delivered in weeks. Local partner integrators help to ensure a low-cost quick installation in just days rather than months.
